Crazy Horse (#654)

It was a pilgrimage to look upon a great sculpture of a revered and powerful indian leader.  A pilgrimage to honor all Native Americans.

Crazy Horse Memorial is a mountain monument in progress to honor a Lakota Indian Chief but also honoring all Indians.  It was started in 1948 and continues to this day.  The only funding received is from private monies and park admissions.

I stood in awe at this wonder before me.  What powerful gifts of  tenacity, courage, and endurance: 69+ years in the making.

    Your photos show the scale of the project superbly, Annie.
    What a huge (pun intended) project!

    Breath taking. Being part native Indian myself I have strong feelings for the Indian nation. It amazes me the enormous undertaking people do when motivated. Great picture. A friend of ours also went there and was up at the top also wonderful pictures. Thanks again for sharing your experiences. Love Ya.

  3. I love seeing the current photos. We visited when I was a child – maybe the mid 1950s. It was just a small chunk removed at that time, but even as a kid, I was in awe of this man’s dream.
